For many years, Montgomery HS senior, Alice Chen called Cherry Valley Country Club a "home course" and for her finale there this week, she took top honors at the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions.

Chen set the tournament final record score to par by three strokes, and lowest total round by two, as she shot a seven-under-par 65 to win her second straight NJSIAA individual girls golf state title. Her victory, by six strokes over Erica Han of Lenape, also ties a record for margin of victory in the final, matching Jeannine Mondesando of Mahwah in 2001 and Wayne Hills’ Marina Alex in 2007.

“I think my low here at Cherry Valley before today was a 71,” the Furman University-bound Chen said. “And that was last year. I shot a 77 earlier last year in a tournament here, and shot a 39 and 38 here in matches this week, so frankly I don’t play my best here. But to just blow that all out of the water here today and shoot 65 is amazing. It is one of my favorite numbers, and so to shoot seven-under, with a chip in on...

           When one thinks about South Jersey, the first things that come to mind probably are the quaint Jersey Shore towns and beaches, the casinos hotels and resorts in Atlantic City, and hopefully the abundant golf options there are right here in our own home state.

        We know about the well known courses – the top rated ones – the one’s that peak our interest (especially those of us who live in central and northern New Jersey) to drive down and play even when the weather might not be ideal. But in times when the golf industry is at a critical crossroads in terms of what it can provide, to whom and at what cost, a family-owned, nine-hole facility like Hamilton Trails Golf Club in Mays Landing might just be the answer for those seeking a fun and  affordable round of golf.

        Located less than 15 minutes from the beaches of Ocean City and about 20-25 minutes from Atlantic City, Hamilton Trails offers the perfect option for those looking to play nine holes in two hours or less at an affordable...

    Special Olympics began in 1968 when Eunice Kennedy Shriver organized the first International Special Olympics Games at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois, USA. One thousand athletes with intellectual disabilities from 26 States and Canada competed in athletics (track & field), floor hockey and aquatics.

    The concept was born in the early 1960′s when Shriver started a day camp for people with intellectual disabilities. She saw that individuals with intellectual disabilities were far more capable in sports and physical activities than many experts thought.

    Since the first Special Olympics Games in 1968, the World Games have grown to be a truly international phenomenon, held in the United States, Europe and Asia.

    From June 14-21, New Jersey will host the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games where more than 3,500 athletes from around the country will compete in 16 sports before tens of thousands of fans and volunteers.

    Every four years Special Olympics conducts a National Summer Games in the United States that includes athletes from all 52 US Programs. In 2011, New Jersey was chosen as the host of the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games, the most dynamic, innovative and largest national Games to date.
